This is a feature request, not a bug report:

I suggest turning set-frame-width and set-frame-height into commands,
so that you can type, e.g., C-u 80 M-x set-frame-width RET in order to
set the width of the current frame to 80 characters. Without a prefix
character, the commands should prompt the user. (I see no reason to
allow the specification of a frame other than the current, or to
support the PRETEND arg, in interactive use.)

In GNU Emacs 24.0.90.1 (x86_64-apple-darwin11.2.0, NS apple-appkit-1138.23)
 of 2011-10-20 on mack
Windowing system distributor `Apple', version 10.3.1138
configured using `configure  '--with-ns''
